WEEZER SURVIVOR: Hurley (RUN AWAY WINS!)

Post by Lt Pinkerton » 29 Nov 2015, 11:47

For each album each song is a round, and each round you vote for your LEAST FAVOURITE song and that song will then be eliminated. When a song is eliminated I will post the results and then the updated album track list without the song that was voted off, and then we continue until we are left with one song from each album, the overall winner. Remember...there is no poll, so you vote in a post by simply stating which song you want to eliminate in each round. If everyone could put their choice in BOLD then that would be great and easier for me to add up at the end of each day.

Finally, the last embarrasing episode in Weezer's discography. Hurley is purely fan-service, a nostalgic record with more cons than pros that was recorded right after Raditude's failure. Most songs were still co-written (bar the very good Unspoken and the goddamn awful lead single Memories) but there are some actually cool collaborations here, like the Ryan Adams co-write Run Away. The other members of the band have often said that Hurley wasn't a band effort at all, which was easy to guess just by noticing the lack of Hurley songs in their setlists during the Memories tour. There is, however, one silver lining from this era. The 2010 Memories tour -when the band played Blue and Pinkerton on their entirety- reconciled Rivers with Pinkerton, the Deluxe edition of the album + The Pinkerton Diaries + Alone III: The Pinkerton Years being released in the span of one year. Hurley was actually well received by critics, which is surprising to say the least.

I just didn't listen to this album properly enough, so I might just break the tie (again). Out of those two songs, Ruling Me is worse. Memories is even kind of good - pretty alright as an opener

Smart Girls

Although the worst song literally ever is named that but it ain't Weezer.

That's what we'll do if we don't keep this moving. We're not doing Death to False Metal, that's for sure :lol: Blowin' My Stack was probably gonna win anyway!
